I didn't like windows 8 so i took the hard disk out and put it on my other pc to format it and to install windows 7. everything worked fine windows 7 was installed . I moved it back to the acer and now i have the boot problem . i tried to set it to boot form hard drive but i still have the same problem , i tried to put my other hard drive which is working, but still the same problem. i can see in the bios that there is a hard drive ( AHCI PORT 0 : WDC then the serial number ) anyone can help ???

    you cannot install windows on one machine and then move the drive to another machine

    it looks for the system it was installed on and then when it does not find it ,it stops dead

    you need to install it in the machine you are going to use it on
